The Farm Credit Administration (FCA) published a final rule under part 620 on March 12, 2001 (66 FR 14299). This final rule provides that a bank need not distribute its annual report to the shareholders of its related associations unless it experiences a “significant event.” The final rule also requires all associations to disclose, in a separate section of their annual report, specified information about their financial and supervisory relationship with their funding bank. This final rule benefits banks, associations, and their shareholders because it allows the banks and associations to share necessary information with shareholders at a reduced cost. In accordance with 12 U.S.C. 2252, the effective date of the final rule is 30 days from the date of publication in the Federal Register during which either or both Houses of Congress are in session.
